B&B Siding and Roofing’s History
The Old Country
B&B Siding and Roofing founders Jurek and Barbara grew up in small villages in the beautiful Polish countryside. They both observed their parents work potato and hay fields from dusk till dawn. Tending to cattle and horses was an exhausting but satisfying daily routine. The work ethic that their parents instilled in them resulted in a special venture years later.
Land of Opportunity
With the dream of a better future, both Jurek and Barbara were presented with an opportunity to come to the United States. Shortly after arriving in their new home land, they took advantage of life’s lessons taught to them by their parents. Barbara started off as a cleaning lady, and Jurek as a siding installer, both working 12 to 14 hour days. It was a hard journey for them, but they knew they were making progress and trying to better their lives.
After about four years an idea was born. With Jurek’s siding installation experience and Barbara’s outgoing personality, they embarked on a journey that is still alive today. B&B Siding and Roofing, was formed, a siding and roofing installation company with a focus on Doing Business the Right Way, Honesty & Integrity, and Pride in their Work.
Attention to detail, craftsmanship and most of all honesty were the main virtues by which Barbara and Jurek wanted to work.
Some questioned B&B’s business model. We’ve always emphasized relationships with our clients over the bottom line. But our dedication to responsiveness and honoring all agreements has paid off. Our growth is a credit to the loyalty of our customers, shown through their referrals, which make up the majority of our work. Since 1993, B&B has served over 5,000 residents in Staten Island, Brooklyn, and New Jersey. Every job was successful because we treat clients as the family or friends they’ve become.
A Family Affair
As the enterprise expanded, Barbara & Jurek enlisted their four sons, Jarek (Jerry), Robert, Slawek (Steve), and Kamil. B&B became a true family affair.
In 2006, Jurek and Barbara decided it was time to let the boys take the helm. Kamil was put in charge of business operations. The other trio, with years of experience under their belt, established their own installation crews.
Today, B&B Siding and Roofing is proud to maintain the old world values passed down from their parents and grandparents.
And, we work to be engaged members of our community. Part of this effort includes charitable giving. 3% of our profit goes to donations. Check out our recent initiatives.
